Shale Task Force: Fix Problems Before They Get Worse

The head of a shale task force convened by The Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Science of Texas says in a just released report that “Texas industry leaders, scientists and regulators must identify and understand the environmental and social risk of shale oil and gas drilling before air pollution, water contamination or other effects lead to tighter restrictions that could derail the rebounding industry,” the Houston Chronicle reports.

“Meanwhile, oil and gas industry representatives found their own victories in the report, pointing to sections of the study that said there was little evidence to tie fracking itself — as distinguished from the other parts of shale operations — to drinking water pollution or the exponential rise in Texas earthquakes.”
